I normally update my gcc snapshot once every fortnight. If there's any compilation issues let me know. But I hardly run into any, if at all... -- Iain Buclaw *(p < e ? p++ : p) = (c & 0x0f) + '0';

I downloaded the most recent snapshot (03/03) and gave compiling a go. After fiddling around getting mpc mpfr and gmp3 recognised, I ran in to this: In file included from /Users/johncolvin/Git/gdc/gcc_for_gdc/gcc/d/dfrontend/mars.c:109:0: d/verstr.h: In constructor ‘Global::Global()’: d/verstr.h:1:2: error: ‘n’ was not declared in this scope -n "2.062" ^ d/verstr.h:1:4: error: expected ‘;’ before string constant -n "2.062" ^ This is on OS X 10.7, patch 2.5.8, gmp 5.0.5, mpfr 3.1.1, mpc 1.0.1, GNU Autoconf 2.69, GNU automake 1.13.1, flex 2.5.37, GNU Bison 2.7, GNU patch 2.7.1, gcc/++ 4.7.2

LGTM, I'll try it out when I get back to my OS X machine later.

Personally I just use whatever is the current gcc-snapshot package in Ubuntu/Debian, which has always worked for me, but YMMV (and that assumes you use Debian/Ubuntu or that your OS has an equivalent package).
